eBay's New In-Demand Tool! Update
Scot Wingo, just did a huge write-up on eBay's new In-Demand tool, on his blog, so I won't go into many details, but this is an interesting new tool for Power Sellers with high DSR's (4.8 or above).
In a nutshell, eBay's In-Demand tool will tell you what product is in-demand on the site but the supply is limited. Again, like many things eBay does, it make sense in theory.
Unfortunately, I think eBay will lose interest in this within a few months and it will go the way of so many other things they've developed.
I have a suggestion; why not put off these little projects until you bring enough demand to the site for the product that is already here?
Update: It looks like RBH at eBayInk just posted about the program with details. Currently it looks like there are 6,000 beta testers in the program. If any of my readers are in the group please email me your thought.
